A student-led project to improve undocumented students’ access to higher education received a boost Sunday from Mobilize.org and the Knight Foundation at the closing ceremony of the Target 2020 Florida Summit at the Deauville Beach Resort in Miami Beach.
At the gathering, more than 100 South Florida community college students spent the weekend discussing and tackling the biggest challenges facing young South Floridians. Sunday, they voted on five projects to share part of a $25,000 grant from Mobilize.org.
The first-place project, titled “High School Community Outreach,” was designed by students from Miami Dade College’s InterAmerican campus, and will receive $5,000 in seed money and technical support from Mobilize.org.
